Ryse DLC: It's tricky
Feb 17
On February 28, Ryse is getting DLC. It'll run (DMC) you $9, unless you have the Ryse season pass. No one has the Ryse season pass, right? Leading up to the release, the Games on Demand Ryse will go on sale from February 18 t... read

Fight for the survival of Rome in Ryse later this week


Because a slowly decaying civilization is totally preferable
Nov 19
There's no argument that Ryse: Son of Rome is pretty, and more evidence of that has been made available through the launch trailer released today. Visually, it's downright gorgeous, but doesn't look like it's particular... read

Women for Warface

Crytek's Warface is getting playable women soldiers


It's still a dumb name; also, the ladies are sexualised because of fan feedback

A QTE by any other name would smell as sour

Press X to express more disappointment
